Grammy-winning singer Gretchen Wilson is scheduled to release her long-delayed studio album "I Got Your Country Right Here" across the United States on March 30. Her fourth effort, it is aimed to follow up her 2007 chart-busting record "One of the Boys".
"This is the album of my career; This album turns the page for me. I'm proud of every song on here, and I'm excited about the team we've put together to get this music out to the fans," she said. "Every song on it is one that I truly believe in. And the sequence of this record is perfect, as far as I'm concerned."
"As soon one song ends, your ears hear exactly what they're begging to hear when the next one starts. I feel like I've invested a lot of time and thought and energy and emotions into this record. I feel like I sang better on this record than I ever have," the country music singer explained more.
Gretchen Wilson has a history of cracking the Top 5 of Billboard Hot 200 with her previous albums. In 2003, she climbed to the second position of the U.S. albums chart with her debut effort "Here for the Party" and then topped the list with her second album "All Jacked Up" in 2005.
With those impressive chart history, Gretchen Wilson has a chance to make a notable debut on the chart with the upcoming release.
